Lega, Fedriga and those “thank you” numbers from Draghi, Gelmini and Speranza
“I thank the president Fedriga”. “Thanks to president Fedriga”. “My thanks to President Fedriga”. A mantra. During the press conference on Wednesday evening to illustrate the new decree introducing the Super Green Pass the Prime Minister from 6 December to 15 January Mario Draghi, the Minister of Regional Affairs Mariastella Gelmini and the Minister of Health Roberto Speranza they competed to see who thanked the Northern League president of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region and number one of the Conference of Regions several times.
Fedriga, who according to many parliamentarians of the Democratic Party “is one of us”, given his determination in the fight against No Vax, announced that the Friuli Venezia Giulia from Monday it enters the yellow zone and the government has decided to anticipate the decree that will come into force on 6 December in the rest of Italy: from the beginning of next week, therefore, the prohibitions for no vax will be triggered in Fvg. The former leader of the League, when he was still called North league, is therefore more Draghian than Draghi. More hopeful than Hope. He is the leader, the number, the leader of the fight against the No Vax.
And indeed it is Fedriga he took sides body and soul against the protest of the no Vax-No Green Pass which in recent weeks had blocked the port of Trieste with continuous demonstrations which also fueled the boom of infections in the north-eastern corner of Italy. Fedriga is an anomalous, ultra-moderate Northern League player, and in some ways very different from Matteo Salvini. Born in Verona on 2 July 1980, but of Brescia origin, the president of the Fvg grew up in a Catholic family from a very young age in Trieste (and he too has always declared himself to be such). After completing his high school studies at the Galilei scientific high school in his city, he graduated in Communication Sciences at the University of Trieste.
After graduation, he obtained a university master’s degree in communication management and analysis, and has been involved in marketing and communication consultancy for several companies in North-East Italy. He is married since 2013 with Elena Sartori and has two children: Giacomo and Giovanni. Fedriga joined Umberto Bossi’s Northern League in 1995, when he was still a minor, thanks to an authorization signed by his parents. He later became a member of the “National Council”, the party’s decision-making body in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, and then joined the Federal Council. In 2003 he became provincial secretary of the League in Trieste.
In the general elections in April 2008 he was a candidate, and elected for the first time, to the Chamber of Deputies in the constituency Friuli Venezia Giulia, subsequently becoming group leader for the Northern League in the 11th Permanent Commission (which deals with work and social policies) and is part of the Control Commission on the activities of the managing bodies. January 9, 2012 becomes deputy leader of the Northern League to the Chamber of Deputies. A continuous climb that of Fedriga.
In the 2013 general elections he was reconfirmed as a deputy in the Chamber of the same constituency, becoming a member of the Governing Council of the Lega Nord group (renamed “Lega Nord e Autonomie”) to the Chamber of Deputies with classroom delegation. On 8 July 2014 he was elected for the first time party leader in Montecitorio, succeeding Giancarlo Giorgetti. The following 28 September he was elected national secretary of the Northern Friuli Venezia Giulia League, a position he holds until 2019.
